    Navy announces ships for N.Y. Fleet Week

    Staff report
    Posted : Wednesday Apr 21, 2010 8:06:33 EDT

    The Navy plans to send seven ships to New York’s annual Fleet Week next month, it announced Tuesday: a big-deck gator, a cruiser, a destroyer and four smaller patrol coastal ships. The Coast Guard plans to send three ships.

    From Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the Navy will dispatch the amphibious assault ship Iwo Jima, destroyer James E. Williams and PCs Tempest, Hurricane, Monsoon and Squall, the announcement said. The cruiser Philippine Sea will sail from Naval Station Mayport, Fla.

    The Coast Guard plans to send the buoy tenders Katherine Walker of New York, and Abbie Burgess of Cape May, N.J.; and the medium-endurance cutter Campbell, based in Portsmouth, N.H., according to Navy Region Mid-Atlantic.

    Iwo Jima will dock in Manhattan during the fleet festival May 26 to June 2, and all the other ships will dock in the borough of Staten Island. The ships will be available for public tours and their crews — about 3,000 sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen — will be feted at events throughout the city.

    International warships also have visited New York during Fleet Week, although their arrangements this year have not yet been confirmed

    Re: 2010 NYC Fleet Week 5/26 to 6/2

    That's always good timing, having Fleet Week the same week as the Jones Beach show. If past years are any indication, look for some additional, non-show Navy traffic at FRG - we've seen T-45s and T-39s at FRG carrying USN visitors to NYC. Also, keep an eye out for some interesting demos around the area. Although I haven't been to any, they have staged mock "invasions" at various places around the area, with helos and Marines dropping in. I think they did one at Eisenhower Park (it was on Saturday, and I was up in the FRG tower...)

    I was able to man the rails of the USS Iwo Jima in 2000 at NAS Pensacola for her commisioning ceremony. I still have the challenge coin from the Secretary of the Navy, I'll see if I can dig it up and post a picture.

    I agree Moose it is always tough. The Marines do put on some good demos using various helicopters. Two years ago I caught them at Westbury High School taking off.

    They usually do the combat insertion drills at Eisenhower Park, Cunningham Park in Queens and Orchard Beach in the Bronx.

    The problem is they are always during the air show or all the action at Republic.

    I will keep an eye out for their schedule as they usually do a demo at a High School on the Tuesday after Memorial Day.

    Now an Osprey has been thrown into the mix! That should be one heck of a show...

    A U.S. Marine Corps helicopter squadron will make a dramatic landing at Eisenhower Park’s Kite Field on Saturday, May 29, as part of a daylong schedule of events, announced Nassau County Executive Ed. Mangano.

    The event, billed “Raid New York” by the U.S. Marine Corps, will be the largest Marine helicopter landing on Long Island and is part of the larger “Fleet Week 2010” program taking place in New York City.

    The helicopter landings at Eisenhower Park will begin at 10 a.m.

    Among the featured aircraft is the MV22 Osprey, a multi-mission tilt-rotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing and short takeoff and landing capability. The aircraft is designed to combine the functionality of a helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop.

    The Osprey, joined by CH-46E Sea Knight helicopters and AH-1W Cobras, will perform an area sweep and will transport the raid force Marines to the landing zone. Marines will perform an assault demonstration, after which helicopters will land and will be on public display, along with the weapons typically used by a Marine Corps rifle platoon. There will also be free camouflage face-painting for youngsters.

    Marines supporting this event are part of a Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force from Camp Lejeune, N.C., and have recently returned from Afghanistan, Iraq and Haiti.

    The event, presented in cooperation with the Nassau County Department of Parks, is free to the public and will take place on the Kite Field, just south of the Veterans Memorial in Eisenhower Park, with parking at fields 6 and 6A.

    Wow that is awesome!! And it gives anyone plenty of time to head over to FRG after that to watch participants depart and return.
    4 days off and my wife and family have already been alerted that I will be unavailable during the daylight hours for
    those days. :lol:

    Two V-22 Ospreys are at KTEB right now. They'll be joined by AH-1 Cobras sometime this week. TEB hosted the Ospreys for last year's Fleet Week as well.

    1. No parade of planes up the river this year?

    2. Will the Ospreys be doing the CitiField flyover? They did it last year.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Ospreys, Cobras and Seaknights will be out of TEB. I don't know if the Ospreys are doing the Met game. They are tempermental, last year only one flew because the other had mech problems.
